Description:   Some vulnerabilities were reported in NetBSD. A local user may be able to deny service or potentially obtain elevated privileges.

The IPsec-AH calculation is always based on the same key in AES-XCBC-MAC.

A user may be able to specify negative offsets when reading the message buffer to read arbitrary kernel memory.

The imake(1) function uses unsafe temporary files, which may allow a local user to gain elevated privileges.

A bug exists in the sh(1) command, affecting big endian systems. A buffer underflow may occur when evaluating output from a back tick substitution, causing the system to crash.

Several other kernel and networking bugs exist that may allow a local user to deny service. A remote user may be able to deny service in certain cases.

Impact:   A local user may be able to cause the system to crash.

A local user may be able to obtain elevated privileges.

In some cases, a remote user may be able to cause denial of service conditions.
